Today, I was sitting and listening to Rush Limbaugh’s program while diligently whacking away at a PC and paying no attention to those in the office. And hoping they were paying all their attention to my radio. Rush played a tape of NJ Governor “Will you be my president please!!” Christie telling a public employee she will have to start paying more for her healthcare. This employee is angry. How dare the Governor say that? It means she and her husband will have to pay $600 more a month.
Government employee paying more. Imagine that! Girl, get another job, I say.
You could see Rush shaking his head when he said, “How did I miss the memo?” How did we, taxpayers, who work in the private sector miss the memo? Oh, you did too? What memo? The memo that says if you work for the Government you are OWED a living, free healthcare, free housing, free every thing. All at the expense of your neighbor.
That to me is the exact mindset our Superintendent has. Mr. Moss, I beg to differ with you. Just because you work for the school system it does not entitle you to take from me whenever you feel like it. I don’t print money. I earn it. And I don’t ask anything from you to pay my mortgage, my expenses. I live within my means. Why can’t you, LCS, and BOE do the same?
“Give me liberty, not liability.”
